Gerhard Marcks House
Northern Germany's number one sculpture museum. Special exhibitions featuring contemporary sculpture. The museum also looks after the estate of Gerhard Marcks.
The Gerhard Marcks House in Bremen is a museum of modern and contemporary sculpture of both domestic and international renown. It is also one of Bremen's most attractive exhibition venues, mounting special exhibitions not only of classic sculptors such as Moore, Maillol and Giacometti but also of younger artists who prove that sculpture is a living medium. Over the last forty years or so, the Gerhard Marcks House has established a museum concept which consciously combines modern art with traditional art, placing the interaction between figure, form and space at the heart of its work.
The foundation on which the museum is based was established in 1969 by Gerhard Marcks (1889-1981), one of Germany's most important 20th century sculptors. It was a means of preserving for posterity his life's work. No fewer than 400 sculptures, more than 14,000 drawings and over 1,200 prints form the core of the museum's current collection.
Visitors on the trail of Gerhard Marcks will also discover his Bremen Town Musicians sculpture and his works in the Bremen parliament sculpture garden.
